James is a Consultant Clinical Oncologist with a focus on cutting edge, personalised treatment of cancers of the head & neck, bowel and rectum using chemotherapy, radiotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy. He also specialises in advanced radiotherapy techniques for liver and pancreatic tumours, secondary tumours in lung, bone and lymph node, and retreatment of cancer previously targeted with radiotherapy. He strives to combine an emphasis on clear and compassionate communication with a drive to get the best possible outcome from cancer treatment for everyone under his care. James has shaped GenesisCare’s role as the leading independent provider of stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR/SBRT). Through a short course of highly targeted therapy, SABR can change the outlook for people with advanced and inoperable tumours – having treated over 250 patients, James is among the most experienced SABR specialists in the UK. He is also a pioneer in MRI-guided radiotherapy, a technology available at our Oxford centre that makes possible a new level of precision in the treatment of liver, pancreas and other cancers with SABR. After training as a scientist at Cambridge University, James trained in medicine at University College, London. Following further clinical training in London and Oxford he spent six years at the Royal Marsden and Guy’s Hospitals developing expertise in cancer medicine
